"Steve Simpson does everyone a tremendous service by raising the nation’s awareness about runaways and homeless youth.” – National Runaway Safeline

The Teenage and Young Adult Surival Handbook discreetly deals with suicide, children of alcoholics, child abuse, self esteem, bullying, as well as surviving back to school and the holidays in a dysfunctional home.

Runaway is an action drama. From beginning to end there is constant excitement with comedy and romance as the only breaks to the action.

The drama portion of the story is so realistic that Runaway had been endorsed by the National Runaway Safeline in their school reading curriculum in schools throughout the country, which was unprecedented because it is a fiction action novel.

The story starts off with two runaways leaving their violent and broken homes, with plans to survive with a long lasting friendship in New York City. Unfortunately, for the characters it does not go as planned and one of those characters finds himself very alone. He is soon adopted by a local street army whose toughest and most interesting member is a young female.

As their relationship develops and grows so does the male character’s relationship with his newfound gang, giving him new talents and abilities. All of the main characters begin to work on their personal vendettas and tie up their own loose ends, which become the entire city’s vendettas and business. Most readers will love Runaway because they will care about and relate to the characters that are all very real to how young adults are like today.

Something is terribly wrong! Nothing is the way that it’s supposed to be. Nothing. It’s not making sense. None of it. One plus one does not equal two. Things just shouldn’t be happening the way they are. People are not who they’re supposed to be. Our lives were not meant to be this way. It’s all wrong. THE WORLD IS WRONG! And someone did this. It’s all intentional. Steve knows this, and now Marie knows too. Soon it will become realized that they know. They are no longer safe. Their friends are now in danger too. It really is going to be them against the world!

Steve and Marie, along with their close friends, must battle different forces as they embark on a nonstop, action packed thrill ride as they try to literally change reality back to what it should be, while personally trying to deal with their seemingly impossible romance.

The World is Wrong will keep you glued to the pages while it excites you, scares you and delivers a fantastic finale! While The World is Wrong deals with exciting alternative realities, The Teenage and Young Adult Survival Handbook deals with the realities that many young people face today, such as alcoholism, child abuse, bullying, self-esteem, suicide and dealing with school and dysfunctional homes, giving the reader the knowledge that they are not alone with their problems, suggestions of how to get help and hope.

Teenage runaways from all over of the country are recruited to make a fantastic voyage to an entire continent that the world has still yet to discover. A world run completely by teenagers! A world called Child’s Island.

Andy (who appears to be in his teens, although claims to be much older) recruits them and organizes a trip, promising if they go with him they’ll never have to return home to their family problems and abuses. Each runaway has their own talents and abilities, including leadership as he puts one of the teenagers in charge making him “Captain”. He gains their trust by introducing them to the Kid Power, a super sophisticated boat that the teens easily figure out is way too technologically advanced to have been built here. The runaways embark on a journey that is not going to be anywhere as easy as Andy had promised.

As super equipped as their ship is they will be open to attacks, temptations and loss. Once they reach Child’s Island, the story only begins and so does the explosive action! Child’s Island is having its own problems and the adolescent crew gets caught right up in it. Suddenly alone with no guidance they will battle conspiracies and have everything from sword fights to high tech battles, trying to protect themselves and engaging in a daring and impossible rescue mission. Even their world will be endangered by the events on Child’s Island.

Just like the characters in Child’s Island that ran away from abusive and dysfunctional homes, there are many teenage and young adults that live with these problems today. The Teenage and Young Adult Survival Handbook directly deals with child abuse, alcoholism, suicide, bullying, self-esteem, and coping with dysfunctional homes, while giving suggestions of how to get help and hope.

Nothing could be much worse than Theresa’s childhood and the damage and pain it caused her. As a result Theresa is a strong, resilient and witty teenage girl. At this stage of her life she thinks the only thing she has to deal with now is graduating and her fun romance with her boyfriend Steve… until today. Almost instantly her life is thrown into chaos. Not from problems within her home but from total strangers who out of nowhere are after her. Fortunately Theresa is the star of the track team because she immediately begins her run to save herself. Simultaneously, her boyfriend Steve, who had his own troubled childhood, begins to go through some amazing changes and acquires some fantastic abilities, which at first works to Theresa’s benefit with her new found enemies.

But then Steve’s new talents literally signal a new set of enemies of his own who have their “out of this world” abilities and agenda.

Soon both Theresa and Steve apparently are threats to two powerful and resourceful groups who want to eliminate them. Their relationship is put to the test as Who Am I? explodes into a nonstop action chase. Theresa and Steve must use all of their talents, abilities and wit in order to survive and stop the threat these two groups present to our world.
